Take a tour through the Multimatic Ford GT production facility, learn about the extreme attention to detail that goes into every Ford GT model, and get a sneak peek at Alan’s choice for the Turn 10 Ford GT, to be delivered later this year!
Like, for example, that it takes nine days to complete a GT from start to finish, from the 5,000 constituent parts that are shipped to the factory, and typically, a single car rolls off the line every day (5 cars/work week X 50 work weeks/year = 250 cars per year).
The final trial for each completed car is a “monsoon test,” wherein 6,000 gallons of water are sprayed at the newly-assembled Ford GT while a factory worker in the cockpit watches closely for any sign of leakage.It’s crazy stuff, and an ironically painstaking, slow process for the company that introduced rapid assembly-line manufacturing to the automotive world.
